I'm a host in central Michigan. I was contacted the day of an anticipated visit, even though I asked for 1-2 days notice. The 'guest' didn't arrive until 10 p.m. on a bike mostly powered by a gasoline engine. He is a vegan so providing special food at the last minute was a challenge. He sat watching the Tour de France until midnight when I finally told him I wanted to go to bed. He was pitching his tent in the backyard (as I wasn't comfortable with him sleeping in the house), but had no other camping supplies and asked me to furnish a blanket and pillow. He hinted that since he only had 35 miles to go the next day to the next warm showers host that he wanted to stay late the next day. I suggested he might want to actually pedal his bike there since it was a short day.
Unfortunately I didn't not recognize his name when he contacted me this year the same day he wanted hosting. He again showed up at 10 p.m. on his gasoline powered bike. This time I told him it was too late to provide anything but camping on the lawn. He declined and spent 15-20 minutes moaning about backtracking 7 miles to a campground.
Anyone wanting more information can contact me through this site.
